Oct. 1 is World Postcard Day. The link gives examples of ways to celebrate--people to write, lesson plans for teachers, an official postcard you can print, suggestions for libraries and museums.

Love the collage and the stamps!

Outgoing Mail

After reading that Annie (Freezeframe) is already making Halloween postcards, I realized how lost in time I am.  Days, weeks, months simply move on leaving me surprised that a week has passed, even an entire season passes with little difference and few markers.  This is a symptom of lockdown, I suppose.  Not that I was ever quite in tune with time passing.  

Anyway, I've been reminded--it is time to think about Halloween envelopes and postcards.  Oooh, I can find my Halloween stamps and play with them.  That makes me happy.

Window Swap  -- this is so cool!  

I'm unwillingly being converted to the new blogger platform.  Good bye, Legacy with your ease and efficiency.  Hello, Hard Times Ahead as I learn to navigate this new platform that I've seen so many complaints and confusion about.

  1. Love that last photo....
    I also have a hard time remembering the day-even what season it is! I miss the familiar day markers that we had before this evil thing took over. I find my blogging is way more meaningful to me now.

    1. Bikes in the yard let parents know where kids were, too. :) It is hard to keep track of so many so similar days, isn't it? Blogging does help us keep in touch!

  2. How fun to get a postcard from Iliana!

    These are strange times with days, weeks and months passing in the blink of an eye. I was telling my husband that I feel like we skipped summer this year. No visitors, no trips in our RV, and very mild weather. I see friends decorating for fall and I'm still waiting for summer. Maybe I should just put up the Christmas tree and be ahead of everyone else! :) I certainly have all the time in the world to decorate. Thank goodness for puzzles, books and my blogging friends.

    1. I love getting mail from Iliana. :) Funny how decorating means less when you don't have any company, though. Minimal decorating for most seasons, but Halloween is a biggy for me. At least it has been in the past, maybe not so much this year. Even as I typed that, I realized that I need to because it marks the season, and maybe it is time to get out of the rut. As you say, plenty of time for it. :)

  3. We’re still in lockdown?? Why are so many people out and about then? Not me though. I realized during the initial lockdown that the calendar didn’t get lockeddown and holidays, events snuck up on me. Now that I’m back to work a little bit, real life seams more real. Strange, strange goings on. 2020 seems to be 365 days of Halloween! Anyway, I love the mail from Iliana and I love your mail to Hester. The sentiment is great.

    1. I think mainly it is more of the "mature" generation still in lockdown. That can be applied to "older than dirt" and "just plain smart" individuals. :) I'd like to think I'm in both categories, but I know I'm in one. I'm all in for 365 days of Halloween, but not so much of Covid 19.

  4. Good luck with the new Blogger. I too have heard horrors. With luck it won't be as bad as you fear!

    1. I'm resentful about Blogger making things more complicated, but right now, I'm resentful of a lot of things! I need to go upstairs, do some yoga, and meditate. :)

  6. Beautiful mail. The new blogger platform is annoying me too. It keeps jumping around when I try to type something or select something.

    1. It isn't nearly as user-friendly. I haven't seen any advantages to the change, but there we are. :(

    1. Window Swap kept me moving all over the world through other people's windows! I should really get started on postcards for World Postcard Day. Oct. 1 is rolling closer and closer. :) Letter to you in the mail.
